Sick of snow? Put it out of your mind at the Journal News Westchester Golf Show March 9 and 10 at the Westchester County Center in White Plains. You may not be able to play 18 holes, but you can try out the latest equipment, take a lesson, and talk golf with over 75 exhibitors and experts who will help you get ready for the real thing in just a few weeks.
The Metropolitan Golf Association will sponsor the Let's Talk Golf Stage with presentations by experts like MGA Tournament Director Brian Mahoney, who will answer your questions about the rules of golf, Max Galloway, pro at Mohansic Golf Course, who will help seniors get the most out of their game, and Frank Darby, head coach at St. John's, who will explain the college recruiting process and talk about how to develop junior golfers. Other presenters include Tom Avezzano, pro at Sprain Lake and Maple Moor, Charlie Meola, from Saxon Woods, and Jason Gobleck from Westchester Hills. Brian Crowell, head pro at GlenArbor, will demonstrate Slice-Free Golf--a presentation no golfer will want to miss.
Other popular features at the show will be free ten-minute lessons from PGA pros, a special lesson area sponsored by the Executive Women's Golf Association, and the Home Green Advantage putting and chipping area. You'll find fabulous deals on clubs, apparel, balls, and everything else you need for the season in the discount pro shop.
Admission is just $10 ($9 for seniors), but you'll get that back and more with plenty of free goodies like a "Bring a Friend to Play Free" voucher good at any of the six county courses and a free bucket of balls from Fairview Golf Center.
